On the fateful night of August 27, 2006, a 911 call came in to the Leesburg Police Department. Two-year-old Trenton Duckett had been reportedly snatched through his bedroom window while his mother and her friends were watching a movie. The case received very little media or Internet coverage prior to the airing of an interview between Nancy Grace and Trenton's mother, Melinda Duckett. Grace hosts numerous cases, so what was it that made this particular case stand out? Prior to the airing of the interview, Melinda Duckett allegedly took her life in her grandparent's home.

High-profile crimes typically attract a variety of individuals. This case would be no different. Whether they're self-proclaimed psychics[1] and scammers,[2] who see an opportunity to make some money or those who seem to be a tad on this side of mentally imbalanced[3] or just your average armchair sleuth. In the beginning, they seemingly came in droves to pick over the carnage of the newly deceased. There were also a select few skeptics who looked on with horror and disbelief as the appalling beyond the pale behavior of 'so-called' adults unfolded before their eyes.[4]

The skeptical few were mostly 'e-shouted' down, through a combination of name-calling, profanity, and thinly veiled threats. When that did not silence them, along came the vulgar MySpace pages, obscene nyms, false ToS reports, eventually escalating to quite illegal behavior to include but not limited to DDoS attacks, hacking into people's bank accounts, and in some instances, contacting their employers and immediate family members. Such behavior, of course, only increased the skeptics resolve. Something was going on (why else would these people engage in such?) and they intended to get to the bottom of it.
